The Ennis Bluebonnet Festival was counted among the Eiffel Tower in France, Big Ben in England and Yosemite National Park in Pinterest’s Top 30 “most pinned” travel destinations.
Pinterest is the world’s third largest social network site, behind only Facebook and Twitter. Users “pin” photos of events, interests or hobbies to share with friends.
The Ennis Bluebonnet Festival ranked number 16 on the list, behind New York City, Amsterdam and Venice but ahead of the Brooklyn Bridge, Prague and Westminster Abbey in London.
Gina Rokas, tourism director for the Ennis Convention and Visitors Bureau, said she knew Ennis bluebonnets were popular on Pinterest but she had no idea how much.
